Breakthrough - World Fastest Organic CMOS Sensor Circuit

Fuji sensor circuit image

Fujifilm done something extraordinary right now by developing world fastest sensor circuit. As you can see image above the sensor circuit sit behind the pixel section of the sensor. The circuit is responsible of data transfer and in-short the circuit will redefine the camera still and video recording capability to a next level.

Structure of Fuji Organic Sensor

 

CMOS-sensor-circuit-image

As you can see in the image above of the Fuji Organic sensor where you can see the color filter layer separated with others.

Till now we haven’t seen any camera based on true organic sensor. But after the announcement of new Circuit chip we high hopes that we will sure see organic sensor based camera in near future.

That clearly indicates Fuji is moving in the direction to put Organic sensor on the production line. The previous generation of organic sensors were power hungry and Heat generation is also one of the biggest issue (see previous release here). That’s why Fuji raised the “temperature management“ issue in the current press release.

4th Generation of X-Trans Organic Sensor

Fuji has just announced Third generation of X-Trans sensor with the arrival of highly acclaimed X-Pro 2 camera. After that company used the same sensor inside Fuji X-T2, X-T20 and X100F.  Based on past footprints in every two to three year Fuji upgrades it’s camera sensors. If everything goes well then we can expect 4th gen of X-Trans sensor will be Organic and new Sensor Circuit sometime in 2018. That will sure raise the image quality bar of Fuji cameras.

BAD News - Nikon cancelled the release of the DL series camera.

Nikon DL camera image

Nikon was delaying those compact camera shipping from past 1 year. Every time they were continuously delaying the camera announcement without any official confirmation. Finally, the BIG BAD news arrived today that Nikon cancelled the release of the DL series camera.

What a sad journey with a bitter end, I do remember the moment when first Nikon DL camera image was leaked.

Initially Nikon said the camera is delayed due to  serious issues with the integrated circuit for image processing built into the three new premium compact cameras.

After that we have received multiple reports [see here and here]  that Nikon DL is coming, but none of them were true.

Finally Nikon said that they cancelled the DL product announcement. They feel the product has become outdated and due to “profitability concerns” they postponed DL series.

Press Release – Nikon cancelled the release of the DL series camera

Cancellation of release of the DL series of premium compact cameras

February 13, 2017 TOKYO – Nikon Corporation announced today that sales of the long-awaited DL series of premium compact camera, the DL18-50 f/1.8-2.8, DL24-85 f/1.8-2.8, and DL24-500 f/2.8-5.6, will be canceled.

A June, 2016 release was originally planned for the DL series. However, with the identification of issues with the integrated circuit for image processing, release of the three cameras was delayed indeterminately.

Since then, everyone involved has worked very hard to develop products with which our customers will be satisfied. However, it has been decided that sales of the DL series will be canceled due to concerns regarding their profitability considering the increase in development costs, and the drop in the number of expected sales due to the slow-down of the market.

We sincerely apologize to all those affected by this decision, especially those customers who waited so long for the cameras to be released, retailers and others whose business will be affected, for the inconvenience this decision may cause.

Nikon D5700 - Release date and Everything We Expect

Nikon D5700

Nikon D5600 is undoubtedly has become one of the best sellers Nikon camera just after its announcement. The Nikon D5600 camera was announced on Nov, 10 2016. They take roughly 1+ years of time to years to update the D5xxx series camera. Being said that, we should expect the scheduled announcement of the Nikon D5700 ( or Nikon D5800 whatever it would be called) sometime in 2018.

There are few reasons that may led to an early announcement of next D5xxx DSLR. #1 of those new Canon rebels are coming with high-end DPAF (Dual pixel CMOS AF Sensor) and that will sure raise competition bar to next level. The other big issue that preventing the Nikon D5500 users from upgrading is the same core specification sitting inside the D5600 DSLR. During our comparison review we have clearly mentioned that users will get same image quality from both the camera since they are using same sensor and image processor.

That said, now it’s time to move towards specification speculation of the upcoming Nikon D5700 DSLR.

Nikon D5600 was an excellent DSLR but there’s still room for improvement. We’d love to hear what you think. so let us know in the comment box below and we’ll furiously email to Nikon.

We are on the way of collecting new Nikon D5700 rumors and news, along with our own educated guesses.

 Nikon D5700 News And Rumors

Nikon D5700 talk is slowly raising up in forums and other websites, but we are still waiting from authentic rumors since the all the rumor mills aren’t daring to talk about the core specification of the upcoming camera. That fact is were waiting for some strong rumors or confirmations, but prior to that we’re able to take a very good guess.

Nikon D5700 sensor image

We want to a massively improved camera

Yes, it’s true we want to see big improvements inside the upcoming camera. And the first thing we want to see inside the Nikon D5700 DSLR is NEW SENSOR that should have

  • 24 MP Resolution
  • Improved low-light performance’
  • Wide dynamic range
  • enhanced color depth

expeed 5 image processor

Expeed 5 Image Processor

Without a new image processor and improved algorithms the new sensor capability will remain unused. Hence, we would like to see New Expeed V Image Processor inside the Nikon D5700 camera

When a new sensor and is paired with EXPEED 5 image processor to provide an excellent combo of high sensitivity, ameliorate image quality, and enhanced overall performance.

The new sensor will not only improve the image quality of the camera but it will speed up the entire camera system. The new sensor may also enable camera to capture 6fps of shooting (vs 5fps shooting of D5600).

Take a look at the rumored specification of the camera of the to be announced Nikon D5700 DSLR

Nikon D5700 Rumored Specification

  • 24MP DX-Format CMOS Sensor
  • EXPEED 5 Image Processor
  • No Optical Low-Pass Filter
  • 2″ 1,229k-Dot LCD Monitor
  • Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 60 fps
  • 4K 30p (Expected)
  • Multi-CAM 3500 II DX 51-Point AF Sensor
  • Max ISO 102400
  • 6 fps Shooting
  • SnapBridge Bluetooth and Wi-Fi with NFC
  • Time-Lapse Movie Recording

Nikon AF module

Multi-CAM 4800DX – New AF system

Till now the Nikon D5300, Nikon D5500 and Nikon D5600 using the same Multi-CAM 3500 II DX 39-Point AF Sensor. And we are hoping for something better in next model.

We want to see Nikon’s ultra popular Multi-CAM 3500 II DX 51-Point AF Sensor inside the Nikon D5700 DSLR. This will set the Mid-range DSLR competition level to next level.

Multi-CAM 3500 II DX vs Multi-CAM 4800DX

Multi-CAM 4800DX Multi-CAM 3500 II DX
Available AF Points 9, 21, or all 51 points 9, 21, or all 39 points
AF sensitivity -3 EV -1 EV
Hybrid Sensor image

Nikon must get Hybrid Sensors from Sony or Toshiba

Introduction of Hybrid Sensor

We want to see new generation of Hybrid Sensor inside the upcoming camera. Since, the AF module only work till the viewfinder mode is active and after that contrast detect AF system gets active once the user switches to LIVE VIEW /display or video mode.

Canon APS-C DSLRs are using HYBRID and DPAF sensors and Nikon is lagging behind the technology.

4K Video

The Video features we want to see inside the new Nikon D5700 camera

  • 4K Video
  • Hybrid AF Support

Contrast detect AF is slow and sluggish and almost unusable for even a semi-professionals shooters. We want blazing fast AF speed on LIVE view mode as well as video. So, not only 4K video mode we also expect Hybrid AF support from the camera.

Body Design

Design wise we don’t want to see any major change in the camera overall structure. On the other hand, people like to see changes, so at the very least the design should be probably be refined.

Nikon D5700 Release Date

It’s too early to mark a specific date on the calendar. As usual in every 1+ years Nikon update the Nikon D5xxx DSLR. Take a look at the announcement schedule of older cameras

Nikon D5300 Oct 17, 2013
Nikon D5500 Jan 5, 2015 1 years 2 months
Nikon D5600 Nov 10, 2016 1 years 10 months
Nikon D5700

Last announcement was made on end of year 2016. Now we expect Nikon will going to announce D5600 successor on Q4 of 2017 or may be at Q1 of 2017.

Price

We expect the price should be under $700 so it will remain under regular consumer reach.

Pentax KP First HIGH ISO TEST

Pentax KP High ISO test image and analysis

Well I was really waiting for the Pentax KP HIGH ISO Test result and guess what I am really surprised to see the breathtaking performance of the KP DSLR. The Pentax KP DSLR is the second DSLR after Nikon D500 to touch out the ISO 819,200 mark.

While talking to many pentax professional users we came to know that the new KP camera is somehow performing parallel in-terms of image quality compared to Penatx FF DSLR K-1.

Let’s take a look at the High ISO test of the Pentax KP camera against Canon 80D and Nikon D500.

While comparing the Pentax KP camera with Canon 80D

Pentax-KP-vs-Canon-80D ISO

Canon 80D is most successful APC-C DSLR of present time, some online test reports claimed that Canon 80D sensor performance is even better than Canon 7D Mark II sensor performance.

But Now it’s time to look at the test of Pentax KP camera against Canon 80D DSLR. We can clearly notice that Pentax KP is able to collect bit more details compared to the Canon 80D camera.

Pentax KP vs Nikon D500

pentax KP vs D500

before we begin you must note the megapixel difference between the both DSLR camera. The Nikon D500 features a 20 MP APS-C sensor whereas the Pentax KP comes with a 24MP APS-C sensor.

The result of using a high resolution sensor is clearly visible in the test, as we can notice that KP is able to extract more details compared to the Nikon D500 camera, at the same time the images coming out from the Nikon D500 camera look bit flat.

Despite of having bit lower resolution / large photo-diodes the Nikon D500 controlling color noise more better than the Penatx KP
